Join The Party

I’m not a big fan of mentioning something ad nauseam so I try keep cross promotion between the Adaptistration Network sites down to a minimum but Adaptistration Jobs has been a very popular site this week; and in recognition of these traffic spikes, it seems like a good time to give the site a bump here to make sure folks know about it and take advantage of what it has to offer.

Adaptistration JobsAdaptistration Jobs is the orchestra administration jobs board where employers are free to post openings and job seekers are free to browse and apply. No gimmicks, no catches; it’s just my way of giving back to the business because in this economy, arts groups and arts administrators shouldn’t have to pay for this sort of thing.

So I’m asking everyone to do one or more of the following options today (you’ll feel warm and fuzzy for it):

  • If you work at an orchestra and have a current opening, submit it (registration is free and there’s no wait between registering and posting the opening so it only takes minutes).
  • If you know a group that has an opening, encourage them to submit it.
  • If you aren’t already doing so, take a moment to follow @AdaptiJobs on Twitter.
  • Post one or more current openings via Twitter or Facebook. Each job post has buttons to do exactly that right at the top of each post; like this Marketing Director opening at Chattanooga Symphony and Opera or this Assistant Stage Manager opening at the Pacific Symphony.

In addition to dropping by the site, you can find the most recent openings in the sidebar here at the main Adaptistration blog site as well as in each weekly email summary.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
